One Skein Basic Filet Shawl

One Skein Basic Filet Shawl

Finished size: Adult/One Size

Materials: (US) size I hook, 1 skein worsted weight yarn*
*Red Heart Symphony in Persimmon was used for sample. If using RHSS or the equivalent, you will need a second skein if using an ombre. You may also need to increase or decrease the number of rows when using a yarn other than the Symphony that I used.

ch 5, join with sl st in first ch to form beg loop.

Row 1: ch 4 (counts as beg ch 3 plus ch 1 now and throughout) dc in beg loop, (ch 1, dc) twice, turn.

Row 2: ch 4, dc in same st, (ch 1, skip next ch, dc in next dc) across to last dc, ch 1, (dc, ch 1, dc) in top of beg ch 3, turn.

Rows 3-45: Repeat row 2. Fasten off, weave in ends.

**You can add a border of your choice, or leave as is.

  1. Does this need to be blocked afterward? Mine is not turning out as spaced as your photo...

  2. I didn't block mine.

    Did you dc in the dc from the row below? Or the ch 1 space? Do you have a link to a photo? Maybe I can help you figure it out.

  3. I just wanted to say thank you so much for this free pattern , they look wonderful stitched up. I am very much a beginner to crochet and this is a no fail pattern. I am in the middle of my second one now and plan on making a couple more as christmas gifts :)

  4. Hi April; I have a question that may seem odd. I would like to make this w/out the "point" part of the shawl. The resultmim looking got wouldn't be only rectangular, necessarily. I am just trying to make the back w/ out the full point.
    My question is- how do I read the pattern and tell which row to begin with?
    Thanks so much!
